2015 June: Convention Celebration

Convention Celebration: Sow, Nourish, Reap

There are 33 mission grants on the ballot. All are very exciting ministries. Our delegates and officers will prayerfully select and by the time we leave Des Moines, we will have new mission grants to prayerfully support.

It has been 30 years since LWML gathered in convention in Iowa. The world has seen many changes — dress, hair styles, communication, and technology — but the warm smiles and hospitality of the women of the Iowa Districts remains the same! They are preparing the way for each convention attendee to be fed by God’s Word and Sacrament, nurtured through worship and fellowship, and equipped to sow, nourish, and reap in the Lord’s harvest field long after the convention adjourns.
